I've been into model railways since I was very little. I had a Lego train set. When I was about 10 I purchased a Lima Train set, which included a circle of track, a steam engine and three goods carriages. When I was about 17 the urge to have a train set picked up and I have steadily increased the amount of track, locos and wagons I had to run with. I have always loved the NSW railways. I used to catch the train to school at South Brisbane and watch the Brisbane Limited in the arvo heading south to Sydney. I would also always check out Locopilly on the way home. After may years of having an uninspiring layout in my specially built layout room in the house, I gave it up to the missus so it could become a kids Play room, but for compensation I was allowed to build a shed! For the last 4 years I have been building baseboards and laying track. The layout can now be operated and the fun begins.
